Plastics -- Determination of the degree of disintegration of plastic materials under simulated composting conditions in a laboratory-scale test

This standard has been revised by: ISO 20200:2015


ISO 20200:2004 specifies a method of determining the degree of disintegration of plastic materials when exposed to a laboratory-scale composting environment. The method is not applicable to the determination of the biodegradability of plastic materials under composting conditions. Further testing is necessary to be able to claim compostability.
